EURO 2020 Venues- All you need to know about Parken Stadium, Copenhagen

Here's all you need to know about the Parken Stadium in Denmark which has been chosen as one of the 11 venues for the Euro 2020.

Parken Stadium

Only 2 days remain for the European Championships to finally kick off this summer, and after a wait of more than 1 year, we cannot wait for it to start. However, this year’s tournament will be a bit different to the other years’ as it won’t be hosted in a particular country but will take place all over Europe.

UEFA named 11 host countries for the EURO 2020 with 13 venues initially scheduled to host matches this year, but 2 venues in Dublin and Bilbao have had their hosting rights stripped off as they failed to assure UEFA of allowing spectators inside the venues. We take a look at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen which is one of the 11 venues for the European Championships this summer.
